affair particularly or the love fest from republican elected officials. >> i want to talk a little bit more about the hearing yesterday. i also thought what she comported herself incredibly well and for the most part was composed. i can't imagine having to do that for five and a half hours. it was actually pretty impressive. one of the moments that we showed earlier that fiery exchange of senator johnson and that moment where she asks, when's the difference at this point? you know, really, went over well with the supporters and many others found it pretty offensive and potentially damaging. obviously, the difference is the whole point about this and informs the foreign policy and the difference maybe why a filmmaker is currently in jail and we agreed that the moment was sort of like a rorschach test. if you like her, that's a great victory. maybe if you don't you saw that as pretty damaging. what are you hearing on the hill from democrats and republicans about that particular moment and any sort of long lasting affects it might have? >> well, clearly, that was the one moment the republ
it because he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected. >> well, he wasn't concealing anything. he's a progressive democrat. i loved the speech yesterday because of what he didn't say. he very often goes into this kind of airy dreaming of how we'll just transcend partisanship. well, we won't. politics is partisan. washington is partisan. it was for president clinton who wanted to campaign that he was there, campaigned saying i want to be a uniter, not a divider. our president said, he offered a vision that republicans should sign on to. they used to be tough when i was a kid. now they are just whiny. he reached out to them plenty in his first term and all they did was spit in his eye. >> i think when it comes to comprehensive immigration reform, i think the president can work with senator marco rubio. but what about on climate change? what about same-sex marriage? is there going to be cooperation in those two areas? >> number one, on same-sex marriage, the president hasn't thrown any weight behind legislation or for repealing the legislation that paul's because, bill's boss signed
is the real deal. part of the pragmatism is a look at the election. arkansas, louisiana, month tan na, north carolina, south dakota. it will be interesting to see whether the tide has turned. some polls show on some of the options, 89% of republicans support them. maybe that stat will put some courage in some of the politicians. >> thanks very much to john avlon >>> our third story out front. notre dame star linebacker says he is a victim of a bizarre hoax. he says he was conned by a woman into an internet relationship. that's the least bizarre part of this story. university held a late press conference tonight on the case. ted rollins is following the story. what more did university officials say to shed some light on what is a truly bizarre and disturbing story. >> this is such a shocking story to not only people in the sports world but because this story transcended the sports world. anyone that follows notre dame or who watched that championship game and heard about manti te'o and the death of his grandmother and his 22-year-old girlfriend who supposedly died of leukemia. we now know the
for the republican party, everybody's been saying after the election, maybe they can get it together, circle the wagons, come up with a new position, new policies. >> this gives them more time to work on this. i don't have any ideas for them on that, i got to tell you. good luck. >> luke, how much -- i mean, we played that sound from rush limbaugh, rush limbaugh is the mayor of planet crazy, but at the same time, he does speak for -- you know this, house caucus, there are people, yesterday mo brooks plans to oppose this, he has a serious problem on his hands. to what degree are they going to be placated or feel they need to put party or country before primary? >> that doesn't apply to these folks. we say to the term "chuckle heads" sort of in a joking manner, but that's what they are referred to now. this apocalyptic group, which will not move forward on anything, and because the margins are smaller now, you see that in the house of representatives. what i find fascinating is the democrats' ability to hold their members and say, look, let's try and splinter the house gop. let's try and make
theys were in the middle of an election. >> that statement is incredible to me. hillary is a very smart woman. she has know to figure out why this attack took place. if you have any hopes of preventing another attack. there's a difference between a single murder than a murder committed by the mafia and 30 people. >> sean: and if it's a spontaneous event they're not responsible. if it's terrorism and they did not listen-- >> and when you go over the testimony, that's what this is all about. this is all about the obama narrative that we heard in the inaugural address, no more wars. the world is at peace because he got bin laden. meanwhile, it it looks like we're looking at a more dangerous world now. we're looking at a proliferating al-qaeda in all different forms, proliferating islamist extremism. and i thought algeria was leading from behind, in libya and-- >> mr. mayor, always good to see you. >> i'm as perplexed as you are. >> sean: you figure out this motivation, call me. >> promise, deal. >> sean: and coming up, liz cheney and retired air force lieutenant general thomas mcinerney ar
. for example, jim messina, in charge of the obama re-election campaign puts out a letter, among other things, saying take a look at the president's plan to reduce gun violence and stand with him in support. wayne lapierre executive vice president of the nra issues a fundraising letter saying this. i warned you this day was coming and now it's here. it's not about protecting your children. it's not about stopping crime. it's about banning your guns period. so what are we seeing here? a real political campaign. >> on the one side you have the grassroots organization that the obama for america team use. now, they can't coordinate with the white house, wolf, on this, but they are using all of their apparatus to get out their grass root supporters because what they are trying to do is mobilize voters in much the same way that the nra has done over the years, which is make people who are for some kind of gun regulation, single issue voters and come out and pressure members of congress who may be wavering in gun states and say to them, you know, we want something done. on the o
now. this is the time to celebrate our democracy and celebrate the president's re-election. we'll be back at you some time soon but now is the time to take a little time off and be great that we're american. >> i know you will and i also know there are some issues in which we all ought to be able to work together. one of the things that i appreciate about you is that you've been able to do that, say that. it's important for the country. >> i think it's important for all of us to see this little goodwill, even if it's brief, especially around an historic moment like this right now. any final words you want to offer alex, governor, before you go? >> i had a huge mustache and didn't cut it until i was 26 because i wanted to look old and then i cut it off because i already was older looking and now alex will get a new lease on life. david, you look pretty good there, too. i think you're going to enjoy it. >> so that's the key to success, huh? >> you feel stronger, too, without that mustache? >> not just yet. i'm a little wobbly. it's cold up here now. >> governor, thanks very much
